Default A curious north african knife

Good morning everyone,

one of my recent find is this curious knife... so curious, the scabbard looks to be close than a flissa scabbard, the general shape of this knife makes me thinks about a flissa but I've never seen a "so poorly" decorated flissa !?!

Could be the oldset flissa ever seen ???

I just took two picts of it cause there's nothing more to see but if more picts are needed just say it to me

Thank's by advance for your help,
Clement

Ps: this blade was "cleaned" with a tools like a dremel and it had left so many scratches, how can I improve this ?

Be patient Clement!
it's a kind of Bou Saada or khodmi.
You will find plenty on this forum.
Of course Algeria

Hello Kubur,

I just see that I forget to post the size of this knife it size 13 25⁄32in so longer than the majority of bou saadi ?

The knife fit perfectly the scabbard so I think it more close to a flissa than a bou saadi (with a leather covered wood scabbard).

The steel using or the blade is also different from this one used for the bou saadi and flissa, looks really different but it could be just a misconception of my mind !

I've seen the post on the forum speaking about forge marking, and don't have seen this one. And I'm note able to identify what it represent/symbolize. Is it a trident a crown or something else
